Hi, can you please tell me your experience on your pre-term labour?
I had cramping on Thursday night it got to the point I couldn't even lay on my back any longer. I went to the hospital and they did a swab to test for pre-term labour (fetal fibronectin test) that came back positive, I'm 28 weeks atm. I spent 5 nights in hospital and was given steroids and drugs to stop any contractions, my cervix length is good atm.
I begged to be released as my two other kiddies were not happy without me. I'm still so sore! overtime I walk around I get sharp stabbing pain through my vagina and uterus and lower back pain that's much like period pain, they are not contractions but are still worrying.
I'm on bed rest atm but it's hard with two kids.
I would like to know how did your pre-term labour start?
were your pains like mine?
how long did it go on for?
when was bub born?

With a positive fetal fibronectin and continuing cramps/pains sounds like baby will be born sooner rather than later sorry are you still in hospital?

I don't know why they do the foetal fibronectin test, they really are not a reliable indicator of PTL.
I had my first incident at 27 weeks with the twins. Had awful period type cramping in both my back and belly that got severe. Was flown 4 hours to JHH. Had steroids and nifedipine.
Had 2 more threatened PTL but made it to 35+2, was on bed rest in hospital for 8 weeks prior though.
Fingers crossed your little one stays put.
